森村泰昌(1951年出生于大阪)挪用了源自艺术史,大众媒体和流行文化上众所周知的图像来创造标新立异、大胆的自画像复制图,以摄影、行为和影像的形式呈现。通过对小道具、服装、化妆品和数码伪造的广泛使用,森村巧妙地把自己转化到公认的主题中去,以此来介入西方文化。

他的系列作品基于一些来自弗里达卡罗,梵高,贝拉斯克斯或雅戈的具有深远影响的作品,或者基于一些来自历史和大众媒体的画面素材。他对名作和标志性形象的混乱解构挑战了对于这些作品的已定臆断,同时也评论了日本吸收西方文化的复杂性与矛盾性。令森村的作品有力而有效的是他的讽刺和为原始资料创造敬意的能力。

Yasumasa Morimura (b.1951, Osaka) appropriates universally well known images derived from art history, mass media and pop culture to create unconventional and bold self-portrait renderings in photography, performance and video. Through the extensive use of props, costumes, make-up and digital manipulation, Morimura masterfully transforms himself into recognizable subjects that punctuate the western cultural cannon.

His series include works based on seminal paintings by artists such as Frida Kahlo, Van Gogh, Velazquez or Goya and on pictorial sources from history and the mass media. His unsettling deconstruction of iconic images and masterpieces challenges the assumptions already placed on such works/images while commenting on Japan’s complex and conflicting absorption of Western culture. His ability to satirize and simultaneously create an homage of his source material is what makes Morimura’s work particularly forceful and effective.
